(photo quality isn't that great here, sorry)

Julia loom, waiting for warp,

New warp, this is Knitpicks palette yarn, fingering weight in 100% Peruvian wool. I'm weaving three panels of double wdth cloth for an earthy colors blamket. I plan to full it a little.

three Peruvian wool warps, Pallette yarn fro Knitpicks These are for three separate panels. so nice and earthy

threading the heddles, Since this is double width (two layer) cloth, I will have two threads per dent. That's why I have the 1 & 2 threads and the 3 & 4 threads tied together with a slip knot. #threading #glimåkraloom #glimakraloom #warp #handweaversofins

16/2 color grown cotton tea towels and some bright 8/2 cotton, except I beat them a little too hard. Next time I will do 20 dpi instead of 30 dpi.
Tea towel and table runner fabric, I wove these in 8/2 cotton.  on an 8 shaft Glimakra Julia loom. It's twill. I beat a little too hard and it almost feels like upholstery fabric. I haven't cut it yet. I like the feel and weight of the 4 1/2 yards.

Here is my third and final cotton blanket. I only wanted two blankets, but decided this would be a great way to use up all of the Peaches n Cream cotton I had. :) And it was.
I finished my third cotton blanket. I did three panels on my 32 inch Ashford heddle loom. I made this one to use up the yarn I bought for the first twoI was surprised how well these colors worked together. .
